This volume draws a balanced picture of the Rationalists by bringing their intellectual contexts, sources and full range of interests into sharper focus, without neglecting their core commitment to the epistemological doctrine that earned them their traditional label. The collection of original essays addresses topics ranging from theodicy and early modern music theory to Spinoza's anti-humanism, often critically revising important aspects of the received picture of the Rationalists.

Produktbeschreibung
This volume draws a balanced picture of the Rationalists by bringing their intellectual contexts, sources and full range of interests into sharper focus, without neglecting their core commitment to the epistemological doctrine that earned them their traditional label. The collection of original essays addresses topics ranging from theodicy and early modern music theory to Spinoza's anti-humanism, often critically revising important aspects of the received picture of the Rationalists. Another important contribution of the volume is that it brings out aspects of Rationalist philosophers and their legacies that are not ordinarily associated with them, such as the project of a Cartesian ethics. Finally, a strong emphasis is placed on the connection of the Rationalists' philosophy to their interests in empirical science, to their engagement in the political life of their era, and to the religious background of many of their philosophical commitments.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:
"This volume opens with a brief, but powerful essay by the editors ... and a very welcome one. The aim of the volume ... is to recognize and advance developments in our understanding of the ways in which the study of the history of philosophy can be pursued. ... provides considerable reason to hope that we can build on the new insights ... and arrive at a perspective from which we can better evaluate not only the PSR, but also rationalism itself." (Michael Della Rocca, Philosophy in Review, Vol. XXXII (5), 2012)
